Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly lining up an opening offer worth £75m for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly lining up an opening offer worth £75m for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

Pep Guardiola has identified the 25-year-old as one of his primary transfer targets this summer, along with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Villa are believed to value Grealish at around £100m, but according to the Daily Mail, City are looking to tempt Dean Smith's side with an opening bid of £75m plus add-ons.

The report also states that Villa are prepared to offer the midfielder a new-and-improved contract worth more than £150,000 per week, to tempt him to stay at his boyhood club.

Grealish is currently on holiday in Mykonos but is expected to return back home later this week for pre-season training, with Villa hoping to also discuss his future.

The midfielder, however, is believed to be considering his options and has aspirations of playing in the Champions League and winning trophies, something that Guardiola's side can offer.

Grealish made 27 appearances across all competitions for Villa last season, scoring seven goals and providing 12 assists.
